Vergent LMS Awarded MariaDB OpenWorks Wavemaker Award...

...for Software as a Service Application of the Year

Ridgeland, Miss., May 9, 2023 – Vergent LMS, a premier fintech lending platform supporting more than 20,000 customers and services with more than $690 billion in loans, has been selected to receive the MariaDB OpenWorks Wavemaker Award for Software as a Service Application of the Year.

This honor is awarded to a Software as a Service organization that has partnered with MariaDB to keep their applications running smoothly. Prior to utilizing MariaDB, Vergent manually wrote scripts for each customer request, which proved to be time-consuming. This partnership enabled Vergent to reduce overhead and make data more accessible to their customers.

“Databases are the key to the success of any business and MariaDB is the backbone to mission-critical applications people rely on every day. These customers have navigated through the waters and rocked the boat to show their excellence with their creative and ingenious implementations of our database products to make a significant contribution to their company and industry,” said Kurt Haberkamp, VP of customer success at MariaDB plc. “Congratulations to each winner on their leadership. We’re proud that our database products are powering these businesses to be unstoppable in everything they do.”

Vergent will be presented with this inaugural award at the OpenWorks 2023 user and developer conference in New York City on May 9th and 10th. Vergent also currently leverages MariaDB SkyDBA's expertise to support their database administration needs.

“This award serves as a testament to Vergent’s dedication to its customers,” said Johnny Withers, CTO of Vergent. “We’re always striving to provide the most technologically innovative solutions that make the lending experience pleasant for lenders and borrowers alike.”
